Personal Description:

I am currently a PhD student in the University of Warwick and have a keen interest in languages and linguistics. Prior to coming to UK, I was teaching in my home country, Singapore. I enjoy seeing my students make progress and gain appreciation for a new language.

Teaching Experience:

I am a certified teacher in Singapore and have taught for more than 7 years before embarking on my Phd studies. I have experience teaching argumentative writing in English and English linguistics at Cambridge GCE A-levels. I can teach students at tertiary or pre-university levels who may need help in English for academic purposes. I also welcome adult learners of English. I'm bilingual in English and Mandarin and thus, would be happy to teach Mandarin to interested learners. This also enables me to explain grammar and vocabulary in both English and Mandarin for learners. This can benefit Mandarin-speaking learners of the English language or English-speaking learners of Mandarin.

Teaching Approach:

I try to teach according to the learner's needs. For instance, learners learning English as a foreign language may wish to focus on conversational skills. Whereas, learners learning English as an academic language for use in school or at tertiary level may wish to receive more help with writing and presenting arguments. Hence, I think it is crucial to discuss with learners about their needs and expectations from the tuition, in the first few lessons.
